InterNations, which bills itself as the worlds largest online community for expats, got in touch with me to introduce itself.
I agreed to give them a plug as I thought it might be of interest to many Head for Points readers – whether you are an expat working in the UK or a British citizen working abroad.
InterNations has moved well beyond being an online forum for expatriate workers. It organises regular events in over 390 cities worldwide – over 4,000 events every month, apparently – and there are separate groups for, almost literally, every country in the world. (Tough luck if you are in San Marino or Vatican City, unfortunately!)
You will also find lots of practical advice on the pros and cons of expat living, moving your life and possessions and local business and personal cultural norms.
InterNations is free to join so there seems to be little risk in having a look around – you can sign up via this link.
